IT IS 2017!!!! And there are so many new goals I pray to accomplish this year, which are mostly business related. The first thing I am trying to tackle so far is some early spring cleaning and closet revamping. As the saying goes, out with the old and in with the new. I had the sudden motivation to do so when my best friend told me she was trying a simplistic lifestyle approach this year and becoming a minimalist. When I started looking at my wardrobe, I realized I could stand to rid my closet of numerous items I no longer wear....or honestly never worn and update to newer fashionable pieces.
StyleWe is a perfect place to do so!  StyleWe is an online women's fashion shop featuring original and high quality designed apparel from independent designers from a variety of price points. They help to create, manufacturer, and distribute an aspiring designer's original work to sell directly to customers through their website. They have a highly diverse selection of different styles of apparel from dresses, tops, bottoms, shoes, bags, sportswear, and even awesome fashion ponchos to suit your winter needs. I have not ordered from them, but keep in mind they are an overseas company and sizing tends to differ compared to here in the U.S. After researching reviews, I do recommend going up a size when ordering. Shop their 15-70% off New Year Sale and get 20% off your first purchase through their app! Cheers to a fashionable New Year!

A Year Well Lived

I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas !  I have been SUPER BUSY with school. And I can't believe this year has came and went.  These past few months have led up to me reaching another major mile stone. Graduating college! My college experience these past four years definitely hasn't been an easy one. It has been a long journey full of good experiences along with hardships. Out of everything that I have been through my faith in God has kept me going the most. Even when I was stressed out of my mind about homework, crying my eyes out about personal things going on around me, and completely wanting to quit.  Despite that, God continue to direct me to conquer so many amazing things this year that I never thought I would be able to do!  

In my final design class this semester, tailoring I made two garments. I learned about the history of tailoring, hand sewing techniques, and the application of non-fusible interfacing by hand. My inspiration for both of these pieces came from the choices of fabrication as well as the popular trend of culotte pants.  Below is the process of how I made both through drafting patterns, sewing a muslin, and applying these techniques.  Are there any crafty ideas you guys have to decorate for the New Year?  Use coupon code: ExtraFifty01 to get 50% off any regular priced item from Jo-Ann Fabrics & Craft Stores !
